Setup and Usage
Getting the stand setup is pretty simple. If you cannot figure it out there are directions on the back of the stand. When you get the stand it will be collapsed so all you will have to do is take the legs out.
You can pull the legs out one by one, which is very easy. I didn’t even have to look at the directions when setting the stand up.
To secure the legs you want to move the plastic locks down over the angles in each leg. This will ensure that the legs won’t collapse when you set a laptop on the stand.
One you have the stand setup you can put your laptop on it and secure it with the 2 clips on the bottom of the stand. I am using a Dell XPS M1210 and the stand worked great with it. You can adjust the angle of the stand with the 2 knobs on each side of the stand.
I used the notebook stand for about a week. I used my laptop quite often, I use it when I’m writing the posts for ThinkPenguins and I usually check out blogs in bed before I go to sleep. One thing I did notice is that if I had my laptop sitting flat on the stand and had it in the bed or on the couch the weight of the laptop would cause the stand to fall over. This was not a problem if I had the stand at an angle. The stand would be great for someone giving a presentation or someone using a laptop for DJing.
The Multi Notebook Stand is a nice accessory, especially if you use your laptop a lot. It was nice not having to sit the laptop in my lap while lying in bed. It definitely makes you more productive and is a lot more comfortable using it. It is simple and easy to setup too. It does everything it is supposed to do, but is it really worth the $49.99 price tag? I really don’t think so; I could see it going for around $29.99 but not much more than that. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Foldable Multi Notebook Stand a 7 out of 10 score.
- Easy to setup
